California-based Spectrum Wine Auctions and London luxury drinks merchant Vanquish are working together to team up into a UK auction venture. B-)

Both the partners are pulling out ‘the most rare and unique’ wines for their first opening in Feb 2012.

‘Anyone who's been to a sale in New York or Hong Kong recently knows how different they are. Auctions should be lively, social occastions. London is well-established but lacks the buzz, the excitement of the full room. We want to bring that back.’ - Richard Brierley, head of Vanquish's fine wine division – and ex-Christie's North America wine chief.

Brierley also said auctions would be held in non-traditional venues and at a more accessible time.

This has the appearance of an ad. If you are connected or being paid to advertise this union it's imperative you post in the FREE advertising thread we're one of the few forums to offer. WW

No, its just the latest news I tried to deliver. I'm in no way connected or being paid. But if the mods see this as an ad, they can move it over to the free ad thread. Also, if such news need to be posted in the free ad thread, I'll do that.

No worries CLD. We just want to make sure that the airwaves are free and clear of that stuff and that my amateur banter hang with the rest of these much more experienced palates!!! Smile Keep it up!
